Question about my new DiMarzio pickups. . .

YESSS!! I just got my new ToneZone7 and AirNorton7 for my RG1527CB and I cant wait to throw these in! But I was wondering . . . I took a close look to both pickups and they are I-DEN-TI-CAL. The only difference is the model number. The have the same size, polepieces and weight. So if they are made the same way with the same components, how can the sound be different between the two? I mean, Im no p/u specialist but I would really like to know what makes a pickup different from another.


Thanx!!!

Different types of magnets, the amount and style of winding the wire, the polepeices, the way they age, not to mention just variations in the material (though things are a lot more consistent than they used to be), etc. Whole bunch of things influence the way a pickup sounds, it's really a fascinating field.

Between these two- the way it's wound and how many windings.

This is exactly right. Only physical difference between the two is how the pickups are wound.

That being said, they SOUND different, which they should.

Have you built any yet? I'd be interested in hearing from someone, as I love the do-it-yourself stuff with guitars. I want to build one someday when I have the time and money for materials

i built a very rudimentary one back in my senior year. we had this pretty decent lab with tons of electronics, but no course in electronics

so, i decided to play around. i just took a magnet, wrapped some shielded wire around it, and hooked the wire up to a multimeter with some banana plugs. we (me and my partner in crime) found some steel wire (er, 'rust' wire lol) and fastened it between two wooden blocks. the output was very small, but it was there

the AirNorton7 is a lot saltier than the TZ7. Have you licked them both yet? You may not taste the difference if you're sober, though. Pound a six (or a seven!) and get to licking...
